In a huge relief to Delhi Public School (DPS) East, Gujarat High Court has quashed the Central Board of Secondary Education‘s decision to cancel its affiliation. The decision was taken after the officials had found out the school authorities allegedly submitted a fake-no objectionable certificate to CBSE to secure affiliation.
The court has also asked CBSE and District Primary Education Officer to initiate an inquiry as per the law. The court has also said the state govt to appoint an administrator to run the school.
The court took the decision after a plea was filed by the school and some parents against CBSE’s decision taken on December last year to cancel the affiliation of the school.
In 2019, the school came to limelight after self pro-claimed god-man Nithyananda’s Yogini Sarvajnapeetham, an ashram that had been setup on its premises. After the inquiry, it had been found that the school was functioning with 800 students in an illegal premise.
An education department report revealed that the school had submitted an application for an NOC, but was rejected. Despite the rejection, the school management allegedly went ahead and presented an NOC to the Central Board of Secondary Education and got affiliation for the school.
The court also said the school shall run until a fresh decision taken by CBSE on affiliation. The court also rejected the state govt’s demand to put stay on the order.
